Dear Anna,

I am a PhD student (from Canada) and also a piper doing research on Ladies pipe bands in New Zealand. I am wondering if you would be available to chat about your experiences with this?

You can reach me through email easiest, if you respond to me by email I can give you my phone number as well.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes,
Erin Grant
